My name’s Veronica and I like dangly alphabets so I peppered my name with them, giving birth to Veyroniqa. I’ve been blogging since around the time I discovered the internet. It was a world of Neopets, Avidgamers and Diaryland for me. Then, the boom of bloggers swooping in to claim some fame. It became a business. It made careers. And I thought hey, why not?
Before my unceremonious entry into society, I lived in Melbourne for a year and a half. I came home after getting my degree in Media and Communications. Home is Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. A beautiful city filled with hidden treasures.
I lent my voice to a radio station for about three years before we went off in opposite directions.
Then I found myself working in the jungle for a couple of months, helping out with Project Borneo and meeting beautiful volunteers from all around the world and learning about responsible tourism.
Life is filled with false starts and difficult choices and all of a sudden I found myself writing for both TripCanvas and Media Insider (which has been rebranded to Reputio). Ultimately, I had to pick one and I went with the latter which gave me a month’s worth of memories in Jakarta but I found my way back to being a freelancer and building on @didaventure, until one half of Didavey moved to Singapore.
In 2019, I became a mother to my darling boys. I found myself enthralled with motherhood and my blog has evolved to encompass them.
The main focus of this blog is to show people what’s in and around Kuching from a different perspective, so if you’re interested in discovering beauty (and tasty food) in Borneo, bookmark me!
Aside from my hometown, I also write about my travels. I’m the kind that will pick a hole in the wall for a meal over commercialized chains. There’s something wonderful about going off the beaten path and making your own. So if you travel to gain experience and not just for the experience, you sound like someone I can be friends with and I hope you stay.
I also blog about my woes of having
oily sensitive combination skin, sharing what works and what doesn’t so you don’t have to waste your time and resources. I love finding products that work as well as their more expensive and popular counterparts. I might not look like a girl who enjoys dolling up but my lipstick collection begs to differ.
Most of all, I want to know you. Write to me and I’ll write back. Strangers are only friends we haven’t met, after all. So come say hi 🙂
